UAE’s automobile sellers wait on market to hit the underside

2018-05-21 08:55:53

Dubai

UAE automobile dealerships are preserving their eyes glued to the horizon — to see whether or not the market bottoms out this 12 months itself. Or whether or not their ache goes to proceed into subsequent 12 months as properly.

Since finish 2015, new automobile gross sales within the UAE are down by a staggering 45-50 per cent, in keeping with market sources, with Q1-18 alone seeing a decline of 15-20 per cent after simply over 50,000 models obtained offered. No dealership has managed to stave off the brunt of market forces, and even classes such because the premium finish — down 15 per cent during the last two years — are feeling the squeeze on margins and detached purchaser sentiments.

“My expectation is that the market will hit all-time low this 12 months itself,” mentioned Michel Ayat, CEO of AW Rostamani Automotive, the dealership for Nissan, Infiniti and Renault. “However even when it does, the business shouldn’t elevate hopes too quickly — likelihood is that the expansion subsequent 12 months will solely be round 5 per cent or so.”

However after two extraordinarily powerful years, dealerships will take something the place they’ll present some development. New automobile gross sales within the UAE had closed 2015 on the 420,000 unit mark, then slipped to 320,000 the following 12 months and 280,000 in 2017. For an business roughly valued at Dh100 billion, the year-on-year declines are leaving dents on their operations.

“However there’s nonetheless no want for outright panic … no matter be the end-of-year numbers,” mentioned Ayat. “It’s solely the retail enterprise that’s passing by means of a steep decline; fleet gross sales, the rental operations and people of licensed pre-owned automobiles are nonetheless holding up.

“What dealerships want to know, regardless of their dimension, is that they can not get by on short-term methods and making an attempt to make use of reductions to clear their shares. After some time, it is going to cease yielding outcomes … or come at an amazing value.”

For the second, all dealerships have gotten their Ramadan promotions going, a 45-day run they hope will persuade some patrons to purchase a brand new mannequin or commerce up. From a automobile proprietor’s perspective, that is pretty much as good a time as any to make up their minds.

Dealerships are providing zero per cent rate of interest, over a four-year time period as within the case of Arabian Vehicles, or straight “financial savings”, comparable to Al-Futtaim Toyota which is promising as much as Dh40,000 on sure new mannequin gross sales and as much as Dh10,000 on pre-owned. They’re even throwing in “gold vouchers”, as is the case for any new Renault offered through the interval. Some spike in gross sales — the current announcement of presidency bonuses ought to assist — and that ought to give some respiratory room for dealerships till finish of summer season.

Market sources say that each one by means of the primary six months, dealerships have had some form of marketing campaign occurring, practically all of them aimed toward lowering the price of acquisition on a brand new automobile. In a cost-conscious market, most customers, it appears, can solely be swayed on costs.

After all, there are the exceptions, as evidenced by the response to the primary ever Rolls-Royce SUV, the Cullinan. Even with a price ticket of Dh2.2 million and precedence being assigned to current Rolls house owners, the preliminary bookings have been heavy, in keeping with Abu Dhabi Motors, the marque’s supplier for Abu Dhabi. However the likes of the Cullinan make their very own fortunes.

Fortunately, the outing, dealerships within the UAE usually are not burdened by sizeable unsold stock. In response to Cedric Zayoun, Managing Director for the Gulf markets on the French carmaker PSA, it’s because the character of market dynamics have modified.

“Earlier, lots of exports used to occur of vehicles shipped into the UAE,” mentioned Zayoun. “I’d estimate as much as 30 per cent within the case of the massive importers. However, now, producers are regulating the exports and shutting the doorways on shipments made by native dealerships to different markets.

“The market has been adjusting to this modification … progressively. But it surely’s nonetheless a a lot wanted change — dealerships should be taught to make do promoting in their very own market and never elsewhere.”

However how good are UAE’s dealerships getting in managing their shipments and shares? One unhealthy quarter of poor gross sales can mess up the best-laid plans.

“Ideally, a dealership is dedicated for six months — it is going to have two to 3 months of shares domestically, one other month’s price of shipments coming in by sea, and confirmed orders for one more two to 3 months,” mentioned Ayat. “If you wish to alter this any additional, it is going to take you six months to get the outcomes. The state of affairs now’s infinitely higher than what was skilled in 2009-10.

“Even then, stock must be tailor-made to the calls for of the market — it’s improper to maintain reducing costs simply to clear inventory. Not directly, you find yourself taking pictures your self within the foot.”

BOX

French carmaker PSA continues to be placing collectively a Gulf gameplan

France’s PSA, the identify behind Peugeot and Citroen, says it’s solely getting began with its offensive on the Gulf markets.

“We launched two fashions — the 3008 and 5008 — as far as a part of our relaunch right here,” mentioned Cedric Zayoun, who heads the regional operations. “No matter we’ve got obtained of the 3008 is out on the roads.

“No matter we carry to the Gulf markets will bear the golden rule — they have to be 120 per cent match for the Gulf. We have now to make them Gulf-proof.”

Later this 12 months, PSA will introduce a top-of-the-line Peugeot sedan, a totally remodelled 508.

On a parallel observe, “This 12 months is about confirming new companions in a number of the Gulf markets,” mentioned Zayoun. “You could possibly herald one of the best fashions, however with out the companions, they find yourself going nowhere. We aren’t very current in Saudi Arabia and that can change.”
